On December 11, 2010, Cook was promoted to the active 53-man roster to fill the roster spot created by the suspension of Albert Haynesworth.[1]

2011 Season

In the 2011 season, Cook made his NFL debut in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles subbing in as the left guard after Kory Lichtensteiger tore his ACL.
